Pravda - A Fleet Street Comedy

By David Hare and Howard Brenton

Directed by Nigel Fullerton 

 


Scheming media moguls. A UK government at war with Brussels. Newspapers run like propaganda pamphlets. That's right - it's the 1980s!

Meet Lambert Le Roux, a South African businessman hell bent on acquiring the British press from the foppish, upper-class elite. It's the revolution Fleet Street hasn't been waiting for. But can the British people trust a millionaire media man from the Southern Hemisphere with the ownership of their beloved papers?  The answer isn't exactly front page news.

This scorching satire, originally starring Anthony Hopkins and Bill Nighy, was first performed at the National Theatre and won the 1985 London Standard Best Play Award.
